A new study reports carriers of APOE4 could have reduced risk of cognitive decline associated with parasitic infection.
Post mortem examinations of brain tissue from Alzheimer's patients revealed synapses contained clumps of clusterin, in addition to amyloid beta. The clumps were more abundant in those with genetic risk factors from Alzheimer's disease.
A new study looks at the possible causal link between the herpes virus and Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report antiviral drugs significantly reduce the risk of developing dementia in patients with severe herpes infections.
Researchers suggest the ApoE gene could be a promising new target for therapeutic approaches for Alzheimer's disease.
Exercise helped to reduce cognitive decline two years later in Parkinson's patients with the APOE e4 gene variant.
A new study has linked the APOE4 gene to mental health issues some people face following TBI. Researchers report people with the APOE4 gene had significantly higher scores for depression, PTSD and anxiety following TBI than those without the genetic variant.
Researchers report people with a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer's and who carry a variant in the RAB10 gene, may be more resilient to the disease than those without the genetic variant.
